It is our team that keeps campers coming back to Camp Beausite year after year. They are picked with care not only for their skills, but for their personality and ability to treat everyone with understanding, compassion, and respect. They are well trained to meet the personal needs of our campers and to ensure their health and safety. Our team is comprised of: Administrators; Senior Staff; Counselors; Medical Staff; Volunteers; and our Board of Directors. All are integral to the whole that is "Camp Beausite NW".

Program Director: M Adrian
After spending two awesome summers (2018 and 2019) with our incredible campers and families at Camp Beausite Northwest, I am ecstatic to be continuing to support and serve as the Program Director.
I have served at several camps with focuses on special populations including youth and adults with learning disabilities, pediatric and adult oncology, children of impoverished/disadvantaged households, and people of all ages with disabilities. I have enjoyed my years of work within the camp industry at various camps, but Camp Beausite Northwest has always felt like home. I grew up in Michigan and adore mountains, botanical gardens, and chickens! I am a licensed nurse as well as a registered behavioral technician.
Executive Director: Raina Baker, OrgL
I have spent almost my entire life at camp, 35 years worth of being a camper, CIT, counselor, horse riding staff, program director, and camp director. I am beyond excited to be apart of the CBNW team supporting our campers ability to have the Camp Experience. I grew up in Jefferson County and am overjoyed to be giving back to this community and beyond.
I hold a bachelors degree in Sociology from Washington State University (Go Cougs!) and a masters degree from Gonzaga in Organizational Leadership. I am a certified master instructor and clinic director for the Certified Horsemanship Association. Most recently I spent 5 years working for the American Camp Association.
In my time away from camp I can be found riding my horse, traveling, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. I live just 4 miles away from camp in Chimacum with my husband Mark and several 4 legged furry animals. E-mail Raina
CBNW could not do what we do without our AWESOME seasonal staff. We have summer camp counselors and weekend camp counselors that are truly the finest group to work with our campers. Made up of medical staff, college students, high school students, and members of our community - we are so lucky to have them as a part of the CBNW family.
Our medical staff includes a licensed nurse on duty 24 hr. a day for each of our camp programs.
Camp would not happen without our dedicated volunteers. They come to camp from various counties, including Jefferson, Clallam, Pierce, and Kitsap. They give of their time, their energy, their money, and their hearts. They are vital to our camp operation and assist in multiple ways, including: serving on the Camp Board, assisting with camp activities, night-time entertainment, food service, laundry, maintenance, and fund raising activities.
Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors is vital to our team. It is comprised of up to 15 professionals from various walks of life. They volunteer countless hours in the guidance and support of the Executive Director in regard to the direction, development, and implementation of camp operations; they assume the fiduciary responsibilities for the camp; and they provide hands-on assistance in various ways, including fund raising activities, participating in work parties to maintain the camp property, and individually in facility maintenance projects and camp operation tasks. Camp Beausite's Board Members are all dedicated and passionate about fulfilling the mission of Camp Beausite NW.
